👹STRANGER = DANGER👹
It all started with just talking and video calls.
He had been on Instagram at the time, all gone now. He was Military, !
Currently deployed with USMC on a peacekeeping mission to Kabul.
I didn't realize they were voice overs.
Then It was needing amazing cards I. $100 total of $500. 00 so he could get cell service to talk..
Then Bitcoin and two wire transfers for me to help on his behalf to help donations. Donations which were supposed to be to Military Charity
Then came the email with the packages scam. This was after there was always an excuse why he couldn't come home!
A very elaborate story.. of course started with 'Baby' ...
He had NO relatives.. nobody else to trust in the world. It was with a security company in The Netherlands
He was very depressed.. baby
The security company had contacted.. baby
The security company are closing and the box needs moving.
20 Kilos of 24 carat Gold. Worth around $950,000. He needed help to get the 'box' and promised 20% of the gold value if he could be helped to get the box.
'Trust you baby'
'Love you to the moon and back baby'
EVERY WORD A LIE.. no love at all, just the opposite.. Scammers do this out of greed and hate !
EVENTUALLY THERE WAS THE CONFESSION...
Nate Agugoa he calls himself...
+234 815 365 1627 NIGERIAN.. the usual sob story of the Government is bad and all they can do is scam (this is all as much scam as pretending to Military.
